This is clever from the Recovering Journalist Blog:
Newspapers for Sale
December 05, 2008
-Still No Sale-
“FOR SALE: Newspaper. Runs good. Driven daily and Sunday for decades. Leans slightly to the left. Fully loaded: includes presses, delivery trucks, journalists, newsprint reels, many working news boxes. Has fresh coat of layoffs. Needs some work: cost-cutting, redesign, updated Web strategy. Offers buyer a unique chance to be a local big cheese. Seller is highly motivated–will take best offer.”

….“What may be most attractive about the paper right now to a buyer?”

…..[Miami Herald] “Its prime waterfront real estate.”

Archer05 - yup, real estate owned by newspaper companies is far more valuable than their newspapers.

from the doj charges against rod blagojevich link

"Blagojevich and aide allegedly conspired to sell U.S. Senate appointment, engaged in “pay-to-play” schemes and threatened to withhold state assistance to Tribune Company for Wrigley Field to induce purge of newspaper editorial writers"

"obama's buddies"

dude, you're so dim, that's not the point of the post.

Oh, I see. The implications of the post are only what you decide they are. Never mind that this guy has just been shown in massive numbers of photo ops with Obama, or Obama's friend Reziko is a key part of this arrest.

And you want to call someone dim? Seems to me it is you that is dim if you think you can prevent linking the two just by attempting to insult someone in such a juvenile manner.

that's all you wackos ever see in a story like this "OH HE'S A DEMOCRAT HE'S LINKED TO EVERY OTHER DEMOCRAT BURN BUUUUUUURRRRRRNN!" your type is worthless, as is the rest of this site.

democrats are even happy this guy's getting his just desserts you chump.

the point of posting it was his attempt to silence newspapers, speedy.

Bite me leftist. The dudes a dirty democrat, and they just announced at the press conference that this goes beyond the governor.

Are you skipping school, or do you work for the KC Star. (Same age group)

Why don't you understand that extorting journalists was only a minor part of the charges? Journalists are not the story here. Bribery, Fraud and Democrat Corruption is, whether you like it or not.

See, even a criminal gets it right once in awhile.

We should take time out to remind ourselves that just because Gov. Blagojevich is a Democrat it in no way reflects on the general integrity of Democrats as a whole.

We should not extrapolate generalized guilt from a specific instance of corruption nor should we attach guilt to those whose only fault is an association with the Governor.

The Governor is no more representative of the Democratic party than William Jefferson or Elliot Spitzer or Jim McGreevey or Jim Traficant or Robert Torricelli or Bill Clinton. These are all individuals who were acting on their own, not as members of the Democratic party.
